This Week

Aaron's a big help in the kitchen now!
He can scrub potatoes really well.

And here he is making oven pancakes almost entirely by himself.

Aaron's great Lego creations

Alexander helping to make pancakes.
Yes, the guys have been eating a lot of oven pancakes lately,
because their easy.

Alexander loves to build.

Andrew finished The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe for his hard reading this week.

Alexander as the king of Jericho and Andrew as Joshua blowing a trumpet.

Thanks for the ice cream Grandpa John!
Nate got a whole bunch of different kinds from an ice cream shop.

They even had Aaron's (and Grandma Sharla's) favorite kind
with the raspberry or some kind of berry jam in it.

Dear Grandparents,
Rock Fwind is coming with us to America. He is about the age of Aaron.
He has blond hair and brown eyes. Don't forget to see him.
Thank you for the ice cream.
I love you.

Dear Grandparents,
Thank you for the ice cream and the miles to go to America.
I am excited about going to America. I really want to go sledding.
I am happy we are going to be there for Christmas.
I love you.

Dear Grandparents,
I looking forward to the vacation. Thanks for the ice cream.
I love ice cream. Ice cream is really yummy.
I love you Grandma and Grandpa.

A Few Pictures From This Week

So Anna was pretty sick this week and Nate was really busy. But there are still lots of good things happening too.  Here is a few pictures.

Alexander has been drawing lots of dragons and butterflies.
He also writes a lot of scribbles and seems like he is trying to record an
epic tale. Andrew says that all Alexander's writing is in cheetah bear language.

We're extra thankful for these big helpers right now.

Out to blow bubbles

Aaron got his Chess Kids Rating up to 900
(which is really high for his age)

Thank You!

Thanks so much to our families for their love and support.
Thank you for all the loving gifts we received this week!

Aaron immediately reading his new book from Uncle Ben! Thanks Uncle Ben!

A lot of our week has looked like this. Lots of cuddling. And sounded something like...
Mommy, the new baby has a head?
Mommy, the new baby has a tummy?
Mommy, the new baby gots socks?
No, no socks yet.
Mommy, the new baby got shirt?
No, no shirt until it's born. No clothes until it's born.

Also lots and lots of reading together

The packages came! Thank you!
Everything seemed fine except for a slight cocoa powder explosion,
but Nate's pants were already cocoa powder colored so it all works out.
Thanks so much Grandma Mary and Grandpa Jeff!

Also thanks Uncle Ben!

The boys stuffing their faces with candy. :)

Thank You! Love, Andrew

Thanks Uncle Ben!

Alexander also drew you a bunch of dinosaurs.

Also thanks to Grandpa John and Grandma Sharla for the treat money.
It arrived and we went right out to the little shop to get ice cream.

And Aaron loves his new book so much he just might sleep with it.
Thanks again everyone!
Nate, Anna, Aaron, Andrew, Alexander, and Baby Rugg #4
